    The Vipava Hills

    One of the prettiest sceneries of the Vipava Valley is painted by its hills. Numerous trails that aren't too demanding will take you through vineyards, orchards, meadows and sparse forests.

    Splendid Slopes

    To the east and north, the Vipava Valley in enclosed by plateaus. The crags overlooking the valley are a popular destination for adventurers. Rather quickly, one can ascend to heights between 600 and 800 meters, stepping into an entirely different climate. In summer this means pleasant freshness, and in winder a frosty experience requiring some extra clothing. When the Burja wind is ramping up, most slopes are sheltered from the gale and still as inviting as always. Any month of the year.
